“Thanks for the feed goons!” – Goodbye Moonmen
I discovered myself as soon as extra in a tidi slugfest, although this one was completely different than most. My enemies truly thought they have been profitable the struggle. I had determined to roll out in an Eagle fleet; there was a struggle available, however my ping solely known as for regular numbers. I had no thought what we have been getting ourselves into. I settled in to my memefit 50mn Eris, loaded some fireworks and obtained into fleet.
We had sat round in station, docked and merry, making jokes and attempting to find out whether or not it was acceptable to shoot blues in the event that they saved scotch within the fridge. A few of us bads, who couldn’t be cooped up any longer, had determined to hang around on the undock. I jettisoned a can with a single defender missile in it and engaged my lock. The explosions from the fireworks and the chat saved me entertained whereas I waited to see if we’d truly go and do something factor. Boy did we.
Instantly, there was an ideal commotion. The fleet started undocking and shortly we have been warped to a titan ready to bridge us into the unknown goal. “Take this bridge,” was all that was stated as I furiously, ham-handedly, mashed the appropriate mouse button, ready for the soar possibility to come back. Lastly it did and having the inexperienced mild, I jumped my beloved Eris into M2.
Battle Underneath Tidi
I didn’t count on a lot tidi. For about 1800 gamers, the unsupported node was, as politely as I can muster, not good. It immediately felt like a sudden ten p.c tidi. Being hit with a brick tidi wall, all of us gathered our bearings and loaded grid slowly. We lastly managed to anchor up, and we took a warp down in the direction of the bubbles and close to the enemy fleets. They have been attempting desperately to show that their will wasn’t damaged, that they’re nonetheless preventing to free their allies.
, it wouldn’t be one thing I wrote about if the whole lot went to plan. Naturally, I needed to do some chad shit and shit went sideways as standard. I burned out in the direction of the enemy Cerb fleet, overheated my 50mn, and was coasting at a clean 10okay. The issue was the enemy distance and weapon kind. Usually, underneath no tidi, the period of time earlier than my angle and velocity places me in vary could be very brief; normally the hazard is minimal. I swear I had sufficient time to observe them wave from their cockpits at me within the terrible tidi. The yellow containers got here slowly, then the crimson containers, and at last I died in a hearth. My one remorse is that I had however one Eris to lose in M2.
I warped my pod again to the Keepstar and reshipped right into a Sabre. Warping myself again right down to the fleet, I anchored up. Missing the loopy velocity of the Eris, I made a decision to play the defender and defensive bubble position. The Eagles did nice and now I used to be merely however an observer of the struggle. The factor about tidi is that although the sport round you is transferring slowly, chat will not be. Native was main. For a man now hitting bubble, saying bomb, clicking a number of defender missiles, I didn’t have a lot pores and skin in a really sluggish struggle. So, I watched the numbers. I watched the fighters. I watched our Eagles conflict with the three fleets on the sphere, all of the whereas feeling fairly assured within the trades. A few of us died very early due to our aggressive entry onto the sphere. We knew it could occur. We have been instructed it could occur. We didn’t a lot care, so to start with we suffered casualties. Watching Cerbs, and costly fuckery die, I knew we had greater than made up for it.
Our enemy hadn’t observed although. They have been deadset that they have been profitable the complete struggle. We heard numerous discuss us feeding, dropping the isk struggle, the target and so on., however nonetheless we saved smashing them within the mouths. Their FCs fled, warping off, attempting to flee, and nonetheless native was main. What can I say; they bravely ran away. Clearly, they hadn’t received the ISK struggle, the target, and even the struggle. They misplaced expensive titan pods.
Put up-Battle Issues
After the struggle, I left the Sabre Kira Jayde had left me, nonetheless tremendous clutch, in M2 and went again to 1DQ and reshipped into an interceptor. I blew previous their gate camp and cloaked as much as have a dialog, a chat. Sadly, few have been very talkative afterwards, so I suppose I’ll ask the query right here.
When you lose the target, the isk struggle, and the sphere to your enemies, the place is your victory? I suppose for trapi, no caps, the actual victory is the friendships you’ve all made alongside the way in which.
